A note to BCTLA from retired Vancouver teacher-librarian Sharon Scott, recipient of the 2010 Val Hamilton Lifetime Achievement Award:
"As the recipient of the 2010 BCTLA Val Hamilton Lifetime Achievement Award, I would like to express belated but sincere gratitude for this honour. It is especially meaningful because Val and I were on so many executives and committees together in Vancouver over the years and remain friends.
Being a part of the teacher-librarian community and member of both BCTLA and VTLA has been a pleasure and a privilege.
Helping organize and actively participating in the Information Literacy Project at UBC Faculty of Education and cooperatively planning with professors, instructors, volunteers and pre-service teachers over the eleven years since my retirement has been exceptionally enjoyable and fulfilling.
BCTLA has continued to support teacher-librarians and advocate for school libraries through challenging times and deserves to be commended.
Thank you again for the beautiful and much appreciated award.
Thank you, Sharon!
